Surgeon: “Remnants of What Once Was” (Force+Form, Tresor 1999)

Surgeon’s last album of the 90s only has four tracks, but each one approaches or exceeds ten minutes, giving his minimal but forceful productions time to evolve and envelop. This one is actually split in half, with its parts named “The Hollow Men” and “Ice.” I bought this on CD when it first came out, and I remember feeling disappointed by it, but I’m not sure why now. It’s just as solid as most of his other Tresor, and it’s nice to hear a clean deep low end coming through.
